Re: “Project Censored: The top 10 stories not brought to you by mainstream news media in 2009

WHOA. cherrypick much, brent? for every example of "black on white" racism you list, there are thousands of incidences of racism directed towards non-whites. jesus. white privilege, much? just because you aren't subjected to subtle and not-so-subtle racism every day of your life doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

and isn't the "well, if this were the KKK vs. black people, obama would be all over it" just as tired of an ideological convention as "well, he's hitler!" if not, it should be.

Re: “The guide to the week's music

whoa. is this the nice & smooth of "sometimes i rhyme slow, sometimes i rhyme quick" fame? while that song was the jam in 1992, i thought they had gone down the same (incorrectly assumed) road as Warren G in the intervening 17 years. but, c'mon, "i'm sweeter and thicker than a chico stick" is still kind of a killer line.

Re: “Tonight through Saturday, The Club Is Open Festival supports CyTunes, Tisch Center

wow, thanks bryan! rusty's done a great job organizing the festival, and we're thrilled by the support we've received from the community. extra big thanks for highlighting the exclusive songs; there are some hidden gems on CyTunes, and every bit of publicity we get helps fans of these bands find some stuff they won't find anywhere else! hopefully, we'll have great turnout the rest of the festival! thanks again, bryan. -janette k park

Re: “Jason Adamo's Sunflower

wow. although coming to these comments a little late, i'm still blown away by a few things: (1) crannyblaster's seeming preoccupation with the self-pleasuring habits of the indy music staff, (2) his/her dismissal of the validity of an entire genre of music while still pissed that people seem to dismiss the genre of music he/she deems musically worthy. hmmmm. crannyblaster, do you see the intensity of NWA's music, or is Aryan intensity the only kind that counts? oh, and why so obsessed with the masturbation habits of the staff? i think i smell a self hater...
